Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

So, the one and only Metropolitan Tom Waits, once a mainstay around these parts, has announced his summer tour plans. Guess what... no Denver date!! Two freaking shows in Phoenix (two!!), and he's even making his way to St. Louis, but nothing for us?! Waits explains the glaring oversight routing, or "PEHDTSCKAJMBA," as he puts it, after the jump.

C'mon, Tom, you remember us, right? Ebbets Field? You kicking it here back in the day? So, WTF, man? No Denver Date?! What are we flyover country? There's gotta be a second leg you haven't announced yet, right? If not, maybe you and those Radiohead kids should go on the road together, call it the Everywhere But Denver Tour. Pffth!

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
